Noticeboard

Following the Government's announcement that the wearing of face masks in shops will be compulsory from Friday 24th July, we are receiving requests for letters of exemption.

The current government guidelines do not currently require an individual to provide evidence of exemption and as such, we are unable to provide letters regarding this.

If you are unable to wear a face covering, there are a number of websites from which you can print an exemption notice that politely advises others as to why you are not wearing a face covering.

 

Research   certificate               

We are a ‘Research active’ practice which means we take part in a wide range of studies. As of August 2019, LMP has been officially granted Research Ready accreditation to reflect our commitment to high quality research. Research helps to enhance knowledge on how to treat conditions, prevent illnesses and form the best care across society and within the NHS. Volunteering to get involved may mean filling in questionnaires, surveys, talking to one of the research team, or trialling a new treatment or drug.

Our base is at the University site, but we are active across all sites. We are a small team but growing, and want to get as many patients involved in research as possible.

A strict code of conduct is at the heart of all of our work to make sure data is always confidential.

If you would like to talk to one of our research nurses about participating in a study, or have a query about research, you can call 01524 518667 or 01524 518669 on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
